Thread: Why do ppl use flash to shoot

    Default Why do ppl use flash to shoot

    in broad day light?? or even in some shaded area in day time?

    was at a parade ( abt 6pm onwards) where i saw some photographers use omni bounce with their external flash and shooting close ( abt 1m to 3m ) from the subject. with flash pointing direct at subject.

    is there and article where i could learn more abt flash and its usage?? for when and where??

    thanks

    I am NOT a PROfessional photographer and photography is NOT my hobby

    This is done to fill the shadow areas as well as to give the subject catchlights in the eyes for the sparkling effect.

    just give it a try yourself... use auto-fill flash... I demoed it to a friend on holiday (mid day shot in bright sunlight, which would otherwise produce harsh shadows on a person's features) and he was suitably impressed with the difference...
